    “The biggest problem with giving them money is the reason they were given the money. Stimulus $ for Green Jobs.”
    ________________________

    I would have to agree. I view investment in green energy more through the prism of things like the Manhattan Project, where it’s the sort of thing that might yield fruit 10 – 20 years from now, but it absolutely is not jobs/stimulus solution. For the president to sell it as anything else is definitely deceptive.

    ” I’d like to see a lot of the red tape around nuclear”

    There is not one reactor project in the US on schedule. Everyone are years behind schedule. Almost all the ones approved under Bush have almost come to a hault due to EPA. Any new ones are too being delayed and delayed and delayed.

    All I can say is thank heaven for Fox News Channel. It appears people are realizing that CNN, MSNBC and NBC are not reporting the news they are creating and promoting their own view.
